This is a kit for making nets and includes two fine shuttles and section of knotted netting attached to two sticks with pointed ends. The sticks were stuck into the ground and used to hold the net in place away from the person as they added rows of knotted stitches to form the net.

Donald Thomson photographed a Mildjingi man, Wilanydjangu, using this shuttle or a similar one in making a net.
